I do remember thinking when Amy was a baby that I'd be 50 when she turned 18 and it seemed ages away, so I'm not sure how it's arrived so quickly but it has. Here she is with her first wage slip.
I'm not even thinking about how old I'll be when this little lady hits 18.
My celebration request was afternoon tea at Nutters which was lovely. I'm definitely a lightweight where drink is concerned these days. After 4 glasses of champagne I went straight to bed when I got in.
Today we had a little get together at home with a few sandwiches and more cake.
I'd asked Mum for a book and a vintage china trio tea set which was produced the year I was born.
I had lots of other gifts as well. Some were requested, others were surprises and all were lovely. Champagne, truffles, a jigsaw, perfume, a voucher and a knitting bag.
Tomorrow we are off to the van and on my birthday I'm off to win my fortune at the casino! Coincidentally my 40th was also spent in our first van at Chatsworth.
If anybody wants to drop by for a peek I've decided to do a little project during my 50th year, which will start on Wednesday. I'm going to post a photo a day with just a few lines to go with it and continue with my usual weekly blog on a Sunday. I really liked the idea of starting a scrapbook but I know I won't keep that up so it seemed a better option to do it blog style.
It's been a truly awful week in the UK for everybody and I can only hope we never have to go through anything like that again. Hope the coming week is a good one for all of you.
